Abstract

This paper presents a robust Adaptive Fuzzy Neural Controller (AFNC) suitable for motion control of a multilink robot manipulator. The proposed controller has the following salient features: (1) dynamic fuzzy neural networks structure, i.e. fuzzy control rules can be generated or deleted automatically, (2) adaptive learning, (3) online learning of the robot dynamics, (4) fast learning speed, and (5) fast convergence of tracking error. Global stability of the system is established using Lyapunov approach. Computer simulation studies of a two-link robot manipulator demonstrate that excellent tracking performance can be achieved under external disturbances
